Definition/promotion of “Local” food leads to head-smashing

Head-Butts and Fist Fights in Portland over definition/promotion of “Local” Foods…

Sure, fighting is wrong, but if you’re gonna be drunk and head-butt someone…

“I thought there was more than adequate number of farmers [here] to pull pigs [for Cochon 555] from Oregon. I told that to local chefs involved in the event,” says Bechard,… who admits that he was in both fights…”They are self-promoting this event and their [out-of-town] farmers. It should have promoted our farmers.”

(Bechard, an attendee at the food event, was angry that Lowe had allowed a pig from Iowa (the winning pig, in fact) to be used as part of the Portland Cochon 555 competition.)

*Entertaining link from Willamette Week featuring some good quotes from the chefs/combatants

*But a more ~contemplative~ discussion at NYTimes looking at the PDX region in the larger “Local” dialogue….
